When Dylan wins the carnival tossing game, his prize is hand-selected by the greasy-haired worker in charge of the game. Ignoring Dylan’s protests, the carny assures the winner that the blue ink pen is the grand prize. Feeling ripped off, Dylan isn’t aware of the damage the pen will wreak in Having Writ Moves On. Hands Free is the story of a strange world of mechanical intelligence. In Just Desserts the new kid attempts to befriend bully classmates with special cupcakes. Callie wants nothing more than to be recognized by the cool kids at school and does just that when a mysterious crack begins following her around and providing attention-getting jokes to share. Callie is happy with her new social status, unaware of the repercussions attached to her newfound popularity in The Crack. In The Patchwork Girl, an old stitch witch is responsible for the creation of hand-sewn children for people not blessed with children of their own. When the mayor rejects these “fake” children, he is shocked to discover his own origin. Ryan is always busy, too busy gaming to take care of daily responsibilities. A magic wristwatch takes care of his time constraints in Fast Boy. Fashion Victim rounds out this collection of strange stories of weirdness when high school runner Beth blames her slow competition pace on her old shoes.
